Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page -

Ruther­glen box­ing club Duries en­joyed a great week­end of ac­tion across three events.

So­haib Mo­hammed (17) took on Ham­man Sad­diqe 56kg in the Ma­sonic club in Ed­in­burgh’s Leith Vic­to­ria show on Satur­day.

The Duries man con­trolled the bout from the first bell, keep­ing him at long range be­hind his long left jab and won by a clear unan­i­mous de­ci­sion.

Shane Young (15) 50kg, got the nod in a bout with Mor­gan Strauss of Grange­mouth’s Zet­land club.

The Ruther­glen boxer, who looked the stronger and more tech­ni­cal male in this fight, pow­ered home with great head and body shots on his op­po­nent to win by a split de­ci­sion at the Stir­ling box­ing show on Fri­day.

Duries had Cam­bus­lang boxer, Ger­ard Mctag­gart in ac­tion in Coat­bridge’s Barn ABC show, where he won against lo­cal boy Reece Martin by split de­ci­sion.

The 12 year old, who has now fought 25 bouts un­der his belt, used his ex­pe­ri­ence on this show by wait­ing on his op­po­nent lung­ing for­ward and counter punch­ing to great ef­fect.

Tick­ets are still on sale for Duries sec­ond show of the sea­son at the Kings Park Ho­tel, Ruther­glen, on De­cem­ber 13.
